Excellent Hotel A review of Baltic Hotel Vana Wiru
We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the excellent 4 star Hotel Vana Wiru in Tallinn. It is an oasis of peace and tranquility right in the centre of the beautiful, medieval old town. The rooms are large, basically furnished, but very comfortable, well maintained and spotlessly clean. There is a large, comfortable lounge, an Italian restaurant and the hotel has it's own pub attached to it, which stays open until the early hours of the morning!! The buffet breakfasts in the restaurant are superb with a choice of porridge, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, sausages, fried potatoes, cold meats, cheeses, cereals, yoghurts, fruit juices, toast, jams and tea and coffee. The staff are very friendly and helpful. One afternoon we were sitting in the lounge on our own, recovering from a days sightseeing and the porter (unasked) made up a log fire in the large open fireplace and lit it just for us. Superb!! Tallinn old town is beautiful and all the excellent bars, restaurants and major sights are virtually on the doorstep of this wonderful hotel. I would thoroughly recommend the Hotel Vana Wiru and would most certainly stay there again. One tip: If you want to use a credit or debit card to pay for a meal in a restaurant in Tallinn and the bill comes to more than 500 Estonian Kroons, they will ask to see some ID such as your passport or driving licence.
